Looks pretty good, you just NEED to highlight the metal. But otherwise this is a very good looking model.

I would agree, this Ogre looks great, I would call this a good foundation to continue to work on highlights especially around the pants (front) use a very light Ice Blue color to highlight the knees, as you did with the wrinkles/folds of the back of the pants.
I would drive a bit more details to the red insignia on his pants too.

The ash tones of his skin should also be lightened up some, on his skin, if the assumed light thats causing highlights on his pants, should also highlight his skin tones too.

Nipples and lips, choose a color for these and make them the same.

His boots, and armor needs to have highlights, as its been suggested. His hair bob needs some color too, and if he is to have black hair, a very light stroke of a highlight color could be uses there as well, perhaps rather than just white, use an enchanted blue with skull white mix, to define the hairs that stand out the most.

Good work, its not yet finished, but this mini will be very good in 2 to 3 more passes to clean up the details. Keep at it!
